Thousands turn out in Antipodes for Gallipoli centenary| Reuters

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Thousands turned out across Australia and New Zealand on Saturday morning for dawn services commemorating the 100th anniversary of the doomed World War One campaign at Gallipoli, an event viewed by many as the nations' foundational myth. The battle on Turkey's Gallipoli peninsula was one of the bloodiest of the Great War, as thousands of soldiers from the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) were cut down by machinegun and artillery fire as they struggled ashore on a narrow beach. #Business #Australia #Middle East #science #markets #Latin America #Entertainment #Mexico #opinion

Vietnam's foreign ministry said it had summoned Canada's ambassador to denounce the move by the Senate to officially mark April 30 as "Journey to Freedom Day" #Politics #Business #India #Australia #Middle East #markets #Vietnam #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico

Flights cancelled as ash cloud pours from Chile volcano| Reuters

SANTIAGO (Reuters) - An ash cloud from the Calbuco volcano in southern Chile that erupted unexpectedly on Wednesday was blowing into Chile and Argentina on Thursday, forcing the cancellation of flights from nearby cities in both countries and blanketing residents in ash. The volcano, which last had a major eruption in 1961, has belched a spectacular plume of ash and smoke around 15 kilometres (9 miles) into the sky near the popular tourist town of Puerto Varas, some 1,000 kilometres (625 miles) south of Santiago #Politics #Sports #United States #Australia #Chile #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment #Mexico #lifestyle
